Created by Dmitry Kazakov on on 2015-01-20

If you see that your tablet pointer has an offset when working with Krita canvas, it might be highly probable, that Krita got incorrect screen resolution from the system. That problem happens mostly when an external monitor is present and when either of monitor or a tablet was connected after the system boot.

Now there is a simple solution to fix this data manually.

1) Lay you stylus aside
2) Start Krita without using a stylus, that is using a mouse or a keyboard
3) Press Shift key and hold it
4) Touch a tablet with your stylus so Krita would recognize it

You will see a special dialog asking for real screen resolution. Choose the correct value or enter it manually and press OK.
